Trods utallige* store** succeser i erhvervslivet*** kastede de hver især håndklædet i ringen og opgav da det var for nemt. Der måtte være noget mere til livet.?!
Derfor dannede de dette orkester. For at få pulsen op, sved på panden og virkelig mærke at man lever.
Derfor spiller bandet med nerve, glæde og smil. Som papa altid sagde: “man lever kun en gang og det skal være for fuld udblæsning!”

Bandet vil spille en fin buket af original numre og klassikere.
Så kom ud til fest og ballade med The Young Jump Jazzband.
Bestående af:
Laurits Bilén – Trombone
Asbjørn Kamban – Trompet
Kristoffer Nybye – Klarinet
Mads Nørgaard – Guitar

Marie Mørck Quartet

22:00 - Entry: 50 DKK

23-årige Marie Mørck er en fremadstormende sangerinde på den unge, danske jazzscene. Efter at have boet to år i Sverige vendte hun hjem i sommers, og hun er nu allerede i fuld sving med at synge sig ind i de københavnske hjerter.

Udover at indtage lytteren med sin varme, fængslende stemme, står det også hurtigt klart, at Mørck formår at træde ind i et univers af overbevisende scatsinging, som ellers er forbeholdt de få.
Det mestrer hun på et niveau som er beundringværdigt, og ikke mindst sjældent set i hendes alder.

Mørck har allieret sig med tre af de største profiler på københavnske jazzscene, pianisten Calle Brickman, bassisten Lasse Mørck og trommeslageren Henrik Holst, som hver især vil bakke hende stærkt op med deres solide swing og medrivende soli.

Gruppen spiller både repetoire fra jazztraditionen samt Mørcks egne kompositioner.

Jon Roniger and The Good For Nothin Band on tour in Europe and thrilled to be playing at Charlie Scott’s Bar!

The Good For Nothin’ Band is to the New Orleans music scene what Al Capone was to the Chicago Mafia, ” The Enforcer of Wow ” the hot bang club, original, defying cultures, tastes, genres, and decor, sacrilege in all its perfection, a feast for the soul of wayfaring pilgrims searching for the Un-Holy Grail of seedy salvation. This pack of rouge delinquents will decapitate your senses with songs and music crafted from utter mayhem and sheer debauchery. The lucky pilgrim who ventures into the room with these deplorable angels with leave molecularly scathed, never to be integrated into normalcy again, forever changed to roam the earth in the fog of delightful Whiggery. When in Nola, seek out these degenerate scallawags and drink in the groove shadows of this notorious city of wonder as they bombard you with their infamous musical tales of the city of dreams. The Good For Nothin Band , coming to your local sleaze palace and insane asylum.

Band Members
Alex Mass, Russell Ramirez, Evan Paydon and Brendan Bull.

Trompetisten Rolf Thofte og tenorsaxofonisten og bebopveteranen Simon Thorsen indgik i 2015 et musikalsk ægteskab og Thofte/Thorsen Quintet blev født. De to ledere har håndplukket en rytmegruppe bestående af tre af de største profiler på den unge, danske jazzscene.
Musikken trækker først og fremmest på inspiration fra 50’erne og 60’ernes hardbop, en af jazzens gyldne perioder med store profiler som Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson m.fl. Dengang var musikken ikke alene dybt sofistikeret og kompleks, men havde ligeledes en bred publikumsappel i kraft af en stærk påvirkning fra Blues-traditionen og et fokus på groove og swing. Disse dyder bekender Thofte/Thorsen Quintet sig til og viderefører dem i deres repertoire, som udelukkende består af de to kapelmestres kompositioner.
I efteråret 2016 udkom Thofte/Thorsen Quintets første CD ”Fermina” hvorfra nummeret ”Just Another Day” er et af de mest spillede numre på DR P8 Jazz.
ENGLISH:
The young trumpet player Rolf Thofte and tenor saxophonist and bebop veteran Simon Thorsen joined forces in 2015 to form their musical collaboration Thofte/Thorsen Quintet. The two leaders have hand selected a rhythm section consisting of three of the most interesting and in demand young players on the Copenhagen jazz scene.
The music primarily draws its inspiration from the hard-bop of the 50’s and 60’s, one of the golden eras of jazz with profiles such as Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Benny Golson and many more. The music was not only highly sophisticated and complex but appealed to a wide audience with its heavy influence from the blues tradition and its emphasis on groove and swing. These are virtues that are central in the Thofte/Thorsen Quintet and that is clearly expressed in their repertoire exclusively made up of the two leaders’ original compositions.
In the fall of 2016, Thofte/Thorsen Quintet released their debut album and has been played heavily on the nationwide P8 Jazz.

Two Generations – Hans Knudsen & Christian Bundgaard

Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

15:00 - Entry: 70 DKK

4 hænder, 20 fingre, 2 klaverer, 176 tangenter og dobbelt op på røverhistorier, ja så har du Hans Knudsen og Christian Bundgaard. To pianister med en kæmpe passion for blues og New Orleans klaver-traditionerne. Denne eftermiddag har de taget den såkaldte “piano-battle”, tradition op. De spiller både “mod hindanden” og sammen.
Da der ofte ikke er står to klaverer på en scene, så er det kun ved specielle lejligheder, at pianister spiller sammen – lige som denne.
Udover at det er sjældent at to pianister spiller sammen – ja så er det endnu mere sjældent, når der er små 44 år imellem dem. Det er dog ikke til at tage fejl af, at når man hører Hans Knudsen og Christian Bundgaard spille sammen og hver for sig, ja så deler de samme musikalske forbilleder. Forbilleder som Professor Longhair, Otis Spann, Allen Toussaint, Jay Mcshann m.fl. Det ses også tydeligt, når de to pianister deler scenen at passionen, venskabet og respekten, for hinandens tilgange til samme musik, bliver omdannet til højt humør og sprøde toner.

With two saxes in the front, an energetic rhythm section, intoxicating blues piano and a singing drummer Jazz Five mixes a live music cocktail that will make your head spin. The audience is pulled out of their seats by the pure seduction of the deep southern funky rhythm set on the scene.

Emil Otto & his Nola Four

Copenhagen Jazz Festival.

16:00

Between disharmonies and melodic twists, you’ll find the young jazz pianist and singer Emil Otto.
Despite being born in 1994, Emil Otto is inspired by the crooner-tradition and especially the big jazz vocalists and entertainers such as Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, and Harry Connick Jr.
Harry Connick Jr. is not only a big inspiration as a vocalist but also as a pianist, which naturally links back to the challenging and disharmonious universe of the great stride pianist Art Tatum, as well as James Booker. Mix these elements with old-school New Orleans rock’n’roll piano, and you’ve got a spicy Gumbo.

Emil Otto has received tuition from a number of musicians including Chuck Berry’s Scottish pianist Stan Urban, as well as the Danish crooner Mads Mathias.
This afternoon he’ll be bringing y’all his Nola Four including: Jonathan Bruun Meyer (tbn), Aske Bendixen (drm) and Philip Akrofi (b)

Traneblæs er en nordisk jazzgruppe med altsaxofon, trombone og kontrabas i front.

Inspireret af den elegante fugl, tranen, basker de sig gennem et repertoire af alt fra stille og rolige kompositioner til de mere vildt flyvende arrangementer.

Traneblæs havde sin debut på årets RAMA 2018 i Aarhus, som fik en fantastisk respons fra publikum, hvilket gav bandet lyst til at arbejde videre med idéudvikling og komponering af flere numre. Alt dette med udgangspunkt i tranen og dens fjerprægtige, brede vinger, og dens nysgerrige udstråling.

Den luftige tone fra altsaxofonen blender ubesværet ind i den bløde tone fra trombonen, mens de sammen former melodierne og bakkes op af kontrabassens dybe klangideal på forskellig vis.
Den nordiske blæst har ført disse spændende musikere sammen på forunderlig vis i hjertet af Danmark – Aarhus.
Musikere:
Altsax – Alberte Svenningsen
Trombone – Jonathan Bruun Meyer
Kontrabas – Anders Bomholt

Born in Los Angeles, California, July 3rd, 1963; but raised in Dallas,Texas, from infancy, he’d started playing trumpet at age 8. It was in Dallas where he started his musical apprenticeship under the the likes of, Dizzy Gillespie, Sonny Cohn, Red Garland, James Clay, Buster Smith, Marchel Ivery, Claude Johnson, et.al. Upon arriving to New York, from 1985, up until the early-nineties, Clemons furthered his apprenticeship and received a lot of encouragement from with, Clarence”C”Sharpe, Jonah Jones, Barry Harris, Tommy Turrentine and many more. He also co-leads a quintet with Josh Benko and Sacha Perry, on various occasions. Works with Charles Davis in New York. Most recently, Dwayne has been teaming up with Amanda Sedgwick and Freddie Redd, touring with them in Scandinavia and Copenhagen.

On October 5th, 2014, Dwayne Clemons moved to Sweden (Stockholm). However, Dwayne still performs at Smalls, whenever he visits the U.S.

“Clemons is a revelation. His trumpet sound is tart and confrontational and every solo is a tipping, teetering adventure that resolves in victorious declamations”. “he could be a respected peer of Howard McGhee and Kenny Dorham, transported to our time.”
– Tom Conrad, New York City Jazz Record
